Name That Blimp

Love Blimps? Name One, Goodyear Says

For our money, the blimp is one of our culture's highest achievements. And Goodyear's fleet of funbags get so much individual attention, they're given a name. Only now, Goodyear is sending out a ship without a name attached - and they want you to supply the tag. The tire maker will run a contest starting tomorrow at www.nametheblimp.com where contestants can suggest their own names for the air machine. The winner, to be chosen by the company on or about June 5, will see their name applied to a giant "Hello My Name Is" tag - some 18 by 12 feet. A christening ceremony in Akron, Ohio, is to follow and the winner will get free use of the blimp for a day. (Awesome! South Carolina, be prepared to have your airspace violated!) Nine other entrants will win Goodyear tires.

I'm guessing that "Big Beer" isn't going to win me anything...
